Wow.. That's quite the eye! Lol. Yeah, but I only used it on the top smallest ring, right below the bubble.... For some reason, it wasn't showing up, and I remembered tweaking something a while ago and for some reason Post_circlecrop worked to bring it out(if that makes sense. Ha ha). The other 3 are just epispiral though
I know! I have a couple plugins that I really like, but it's a hit or miss if they'll work. Lol. There's just so many variations of so many flames, that it seems as soon as I have one part figured out, I'll discover something else. Ha ha. (Sorry for the late reply btw... Been a little under the weather.)
Nice :> Though I always find some of these depressing, wondering if people just randomly fooled around till they got this, or are there super math geniuses that knew from scratch what come out heh :> I never seem to get to thos level heh.
I know! I look at some fractals, and am just speechless... I just can't imagine how they got to where they did. Lol. Especially with some of the fractal programs that are more math heavy... I stink at math, so I think that's why I stick with apo. Lol. Way less headache. Ha ha
yeah, though ths one here shows just how math heavy it can be hehe :> Though we can still make alot of fun ones on our own, some times I'm blown away at how much a tiny change that in preview sucks....but when rendered I'm blown away.
Like this one [link] It looks horrible in the preview window, but when it rendered....I knew I had what I wanted and didn't want to risk changing it.
I know what you mean... especially when it comes to flowers like those. Just the teeniest movement can make it totally different (sometimes good,sometimes not. Lol). Or, like you said, sometimes looks horrible in the preview, but when it's rendered, I'm like, "How the heck did THAT come from that?" Ha ha.
I probably wouldn't have changed that one either... Not only is the shape beautiful, I love the contrast of the black and white (and some light gold or red maybe?). I saw that earlier, and thought I had fave'd it, but I guess not... Oh well, it's done now!
I was tempted to try different colours on that one, and may have found a better one, but I was so happy with how it was I didn't want to risk it.
What I'm constantly blown away by and post from time to time here, is just how good the RNG is for random flames, some of the best ones I've seen were just the first flame that pops up when I run apophysis and I'm in other window or afk a few mins.
Same here... I had one the other day that looked exactly like Saturn with the Northern Lights behind it. Absolutely beautiful.. Not the most intricate and detailed flame, but for a random flame, I was astounded!
